The authors would like to thank the following people:
Joe Hicklin of MathWorks for getting Howard into neural network research years ago at the University of Idaho, for encouraging Howard and Mark to write the toolbox, for providing crucial help in getting the first toolbox Version 1.0 out the door, for continuing to help with the toolbox in many ways, and for being such a good friend.
Roy Lurie of MathWorks for his continued enthusiasm for the possibilities for Neural Network Toolbox™ software.
Mary Ann Freeman of MathWorks for general support and for her leadership of a great team of people we enjoy working with.
Rakesh Kumar of MathWorks for cheerfully providing technical and practical help, encouragement, ideas and always going the extra mile for us.
Alan LaFleur of MathWorks for facilitating our documentation work.
Stephen Vanreusel of MathWorks for help with testing.
Dan Doherty of MathWorks for marketing support and ideas.
Orlando De Jesús of Oklahoma State University for his excellent work in developing and programming the dynamic training algorithms described in Time Series and Dynamic Systems and in programming the neural network controllers described in Neural Network Control Systems in the Neural Network Toolbox User's Guide.
Martin T. Hagan, Howard B. Demuth, and Mark Hudson Beale for permission to include various problems, examples, and other material from Neural Network Design, January, 1996.
